The INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CORPUS LINGUISTICS (IJCL) is a new
journal that will be launched in 1996, under the editorship of
Wolfgang Teubert and published by John Benjamins Publishing
Company (Amsterdam/Philadelpia).

IJCL will present a wide range of views on the role of corpus
linguistics in language research, lexicography and in natural
language processing (NLP).

IJCL seeks to publish research that views language as a social
phenomenon that can be investigated empirically on the basis of
authentic spoken and written texts. Corpus linguistics
specifies corpus design in respect to research interests,
provides computational methods of extracting linguistic know-
ledge, and conceives tools to validate the accuracy of lin-
guistic description. It views meaning as language usage to be
studied in actual corpus citations. Corpus linguistics provides
help to compare languages and to analyse language change. IJCL
will discuss aspects such as the above.

IJCL focuses on corpus-based monolingual and multilingual
lexicography. Corpus linguistics provides a methodology to deal
with multi-word units, collocations, set phrases, etc.
Comparable and parallel corpora can supply context-sensitive
translation equivalents better than standard dictionaries. IJCL
covers corpus-based dictionaries for human users as well as
lexicons for NLP applications.

IJCL aims to conciliate the expectations of language industry
with the goals of academic linguistics research. Corpora are
the basic resources in language engineering. It is the lin-
guistic knowledge extracted from corpora that determines the
performance of any NLP application. IJCL is a forum to exchange
and share experience, expertise, visions and information on
resources and tools.

IJCL will, besides a substantial information section, also
feature book reviews, abstracts of relevant articles in leading
journals and in important conference proceedings, reports on
focal language and language technology centres, both in the
academic and the industrial field.
